WPT schedule explores new territory

With the first event of Season 6 hardly more than a week away, the World Poker Tour has released its official tournament schedule for the year.

The poker calendar includes 19 regular-season tour stops as well as the annual ladies-only event. Several other specials and themed invitation events are to be announced at a later date, said the WPT in a press release Tuesday.

The newest members of the WPT lineup include stops in the Caribbean's Turks and Caicos Islands; Barcelona, Spain; and the renowned Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Miss. Additional tournaments were also slated for WPT events at existing member casinos.

"It's important to continue delivering fresh and exciting experiences for our players and fans on both the tournament and television level," said WPT CEO Steve Lipscomb.

"By adding WPT stops in beautiful locations around the world coupled with our move to a gaming-dedicated network like GSN, season six is poised to be the best year yet."

But don't fret: the old standbys haven't been forgotten. The WPT will still make stops at Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Commerce Casino, The Bicylce Casino, Gold Strike Casino and Resort, Grand Sierra Resort and Casino, Bay 101 and Niagara Fallsview Resort Casino.
